Maytag atlantis dryer

When you pull to start, you see the dampness light come on, hear the motor hum, motor doesn't turn, and the light goes out once the button is release. Does anyone know the cure or cause? Thanks

What will prevent my dryer from starting?The controls are working but it seems to have something keeping the tub from taking off!


Pull on the belt...make sure it isn't stretched or broken.RemRemove the belt from the motor pulley and see if the motor will spin. Make sure you have the correct voltage. A 220v dryer requires 2 legs with 110v on each. If MOTOROLA Does Not Spin Check Voltage At motor. There should be a schematic inside the dryer (usually taped near the control panel) this will tell you if the motor is 110 or 220 v. If the motor has sufficient power but won't turn it is probably bad. ( note some 220v motors may have a start capacitor on it...this gives a boost to the electricity to get the motor started...if it goes bad the motor will not start..)

There are a few different scenarios which would cause the dryer not to start. First, make sure you door switch is functional. Second, the white thermal fuse, located on the exhaust housing may be open. Worst case scenario would be a defective timer or motor. Either of these may not be cost-effective to replace.

I have a maytag atlantis dryer and it will not start. I checked the front safety switch and it is working. Light that says damp comes on but does not start


The 304473 thermal fuse has blown. It is located down on the left side of your heater. For a quick check of this you can with the dryer unplugged jump the two wires together making sure they don't touch any metal and plug back in and try to start. 5.00 part.

Dryer stopped running, will not restart


When you try to restart do you hear a motor running? If you do hear that sound and the dryer does not turn your belt could be the problem. (broken)
